Wow, I got a notice from the AMAA. Next year's dues are going to double. Going from $50 to $100. Not sure about you but that's a big price hike.
Any thoughts or feedback? The Voice is included in that. Junior dues are also increasing.

My guess is that JB informed the Board that the AMAA dues were half that of the ASA.  I've wondered for a couple of years why this hadn't already happened.

i noticed in the minutes that some travel expenses were going to be paid, not sure what that's about.  also, a test for spastic pareisis is potentially in the works which costs money as well.  i'm ok with the dues increase, what does the breed association to help maine breeders get bulls in bull tests other than maine ads in regional periodicals?  is it appropriate for the breed to get involved with these types of test, perhaps sifting, coordination etc?
